A variety of Florida singer-songwriters have contributed their original songs about Florida rivers and waterways to a unique educational endeavor. The coordinator of this special CD project, Karen Ahlers, says through music listeners can learn about the history, culture, commerce, beauty and fragility of Florida’s water.
